"The December 7th Pearl Harbor attack motivated abstract painter-filmmaker Francis Lee to produce these images evocative of the horrors of war. The splattered wet paint designs and broken light bulbs allude to the senseless destruction. The potent visuals are reinforced by the driving rhythms of Stravinsky’s aggressive atonal music." —Bruce Posner

"Lee’s emotionally powerful rendering of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is presented as an abstract, animated action painting, its saturated color made possible through the new 16mm Kodachrome. Finally, primary colors give way to grays, blacks, and browns, as the world is metaphorically turned into an ashen battlefield." —Jan-Christopher Horak

Music by Igor Stravinsky
